ipod IMO is over rated. The Zen is better in terms of battery life and format support. althought the ipod is thinner I would still go with the Zen.

I'm not sure what your poll means so I didn't vote.

The iPod is compatible with iTunes music and videos, which really helps. It's the most coherent and easy-to-use online media store, which give it an inherent advantage in my opinion. Plus there are a TON of accesories and cases for it. I'd go for the iPod.

Yea, but they cost a ridiculous amount of money for something that isn't worth it, like I've seen a laser pointer that cost 20 bucks that you plug into the ipod (seriouslly, 20 bucks for a laser pointer!?), or you can go pay 6 dollars for a laser pen and be able to write with it too.

So far there isn't really anything for the ipod that strikes me as worth the money.

Compatibility with a great media store doesn't jump out at you?

I vote the Creative honestly. Maybe it's my sudden anti-Apple attitude which requires that I hate everything popular, but I think the Zen Vision M is a good device.

It has a much better screen, radio features, and I think it looks cooler and, most importantly, not many people have them. Of course, if you actually use iTunes and its Music Store, then go with the iPod. But if you use anything else, or want higher quality movie-watching/picture-viewing and want to take advantage of the plethora of file formats that the Zen offers. I'd go with that.

And then tell me if it's good so I can get one.
